Strengthen Your Paintings Class offered on July 8-9, 2017 @ The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita
Jul 8 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Strengthen Your Paintings Class offered on July 8-9, 2017

HoffmanThe Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer a two-day “Strengthen Your Paintings: The Foundation of Composition and Value” workshop the weekend of July 8-9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Led by Eugene-based Carolyn Gates, a frequent Hoffman Center instructor, the class is designed for students age 18 and up. Beginning level is fine. Some drawing skills preferred, but not necessary.

Tuition for the workshop will be $100, with a possible materials fee. The class will be limited to 10 students.

“Strengthen Your Paintings” will focus on concepts that are foundational to the art. “Day 1 will cover the elements of good composition. These are the bones of any painting,” said Gates. “Day 2 will explore value, the lights and darks, which are the muscle behind what makes a painting really work.”

“This class will include both lecture and hands on application of the concepts,” she added. “It is geared to the beginning student who wants to delve a little deeper. Examples and demonstrations will emphasize watercolor, but other mediums can also benefit from this class.”

Gates studied studio art at Mira Costa College in Oceanside, Calif., and watercolor painting at Lane Community College in Eugene, Ore. She won a commission in 2004 to paint the Stations of the Cross for a permanent installation at St. Bede’s Episcopal Church outside Portland.

She has been awarded several private commissions in watercolor and colored pencil and is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. Interested persons can register for “Strengthen Your Paintings” at the Hoffman Center for the Arts blog (http://hoffmanblog.org/ ). Deadline for registration is Saturday, June 24.

 

 

Materials List for Hoffman Center Class

 

Paper

 

1 full sheet (22” x 30”) 140# Arches Cold Press paper

 

Sketch book

Bring your favorite sketchbook, to use for thumb nail sketches and planning ideas

 

Brushes

 

Bring any watercolor brushes you already have. Synthetic brushes are the least expensive, and you should get the best you can afford.  I recommend Winsor Newton Sceptre Gold II for a Sable/Synthetic blend.   Pure sable brushes are the best, but are the most expensive.

 

No 12 round

No 8 round

No 4 round

1″ flat (optional)

1/2″ flat (optional)

 

Paint

 

Bring any watercolor paints that you have, but my recommendation is either Winsor Newton (Professional Artist level), M. Graham, or Daniel Smith.  If you are buying new paints a .5 ml size tube is fine.  The minimum suggested palette would consist of the following (options in parentheses):

 

1 Yellow  (Aureolin, Cadmium Yellow or New Gamboge)

1-2 Reds (Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Winsor Red)

1 Blue (French Ultramarine, Cobalt Blue, Prussian Blue)

1 Green (Winsor Green, Pthalo Green, Sap Green)

1 Brown (Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, Sepia)

1 Black (Neutral Tint, Ivory Black)

 

My suggested palette for this workshop is Winsor Newton Professional Artist level:

 

French Ultramarine Blue

Burnt Sienna

Aureolin (Yellow)

Cadmium Red

Permanent Alizarin Crimson

Winsor Green (Yellow Shade)

Neutral Tint – for doing value studies


Other Supplies

 

Palette

HB Pencil

Kneaded eraser

2 water containers (minimum)

Paper towels

Masking tape

Small spray bottle

A metal or plastic yard stick (if you already have one) (for tearing paper)

 

Photographs

 

Please bring several photographs that you would like to work from.  If possible, please bring the photos in black and white as well as color. 2-4 different photos will give you some options.  They can be printed off of your computer if you have digital photos.

 

The subject matter should be something that you are inspired by, but please keep it somewhat simple.  Examples would be: one main subject such as a flower, a bird, your pet, an interesting object, a still life, or a very simple landscape.

Marga Stanley at Seaside First Saturday Art Walk @ Fairweather House and Gallery
Oct 7 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Foghorn Leghorn by Marga.

My art training comes from watching and experimenting and then doing it all over again, exposing a little more of me, Marga, with every attempt.

With each coat of paint, whether it’s watercolors, gouache, acrylics and oil comes depth and motion…it’s exciting and satisfying to see my work evolve from one layer to the next. I love using odd tools to paint with….for instance, the main images on my mini whimsy collection, were painted with a toothpick (I couldn’t find a small enough pallet knife).

I love the movement of things… whether it’s the hair or feather on a bird’s head or the drooping of a flower’s leaf…I want to make my painting live and breathe.

While living in the Caribbean I founded an annual fine arts fair, featuring over 20 very talented and diverse artists.

I draw on a regular basis with an exceptional group of local artists and am one of the founding members of Tempo Gallery, an arts collective, in Astoria.

My art has been shown in Canada, British West Indies, and the US, with collectors in OR, NY, NJ, MO, CA, FL, WA and Canada and Japan.– Hugs, Marga.

SAVE THE DATE AND TIME!

Celebrating 13 years in 2017, the next Seaside First Saturday Art Walk, will be held on October 7, 5-7: pm.

The event is free and is all about seeing and selling art in the sponsoring galleries and boutiques located between Holladay and Broadway in the historic Gilbert District of downtown Seaside. Complimentary parking  is on the corner of Holladay and Oceanway.

Fairweather House and Gallery, 612 Broadway

Opening reception for SHADOWS, an exhibition that focuses on the interplay of light and dark through selected art that expresses time as the fall season progresses. New artwork by Northwest artists Diane Copenhaver, Gregory Bell, Janet Hickox, Penelope Culbertson, Whelsey Whelp, Ashley Howarth, Lisa Wiser, Karen E. Lewis,  Tamara Johnson and Marga Stanley will be featured.

Naturalist, biologist and scientist  Neal Maine will speak at 6: pm about the autumn ecology of the local habitat.

And, too, during the opening reception of  SHADOWS on October 7th there will be a paddle auction  of selected Neal Maine images  to benefit the  WCNC.

LIVE music by Shirley 88.

LIVE scribing by calligraphy artist Penelope Culbertson.

Special guest of honor will be Flynn,  “the handsomest Kestrel around and one of the  WCNC Ambassador Birds”  will be on hand celebrating the opening of Fairweather’s new exhibition SHADOWS!

Q: What is the WCNC, you ask?

A: Wildlife Center of the North Coast (WCNC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Oregon corporation, that specializes in wildlife rehabilitation of resident and migratory birds, mammals and other wild creatures naturally occurring in Oregon.

WCNC provides primary services to communities along 167 miles of coastline in Oregon and southwest Washington offering humane care and professional medical treatment to sick, injured, orphaned and displaced native wildlife with the goal of releasing healthy wild animals back into their appropriate habitat; offers quality conservation + environmental education programs concerning local wildlife, their ecosystems, and the human impact on these systems and individuals.
